All you artists are totally awesome - I love all these avatars

(And if you could see my abandoned effort in MS paint you'd know why I'm 100% impressed!!)

The artistry of all the entries is wonderful, but this one still cracks me up. Every now and then it pops into my head, and I start giggling, which has gotten me some very strange looks. Really, I think Rocky II would have been vastly improved with a piratey, crow-wielding Apollo (they could have blamed it on one too many blows to the head, perhaps).

Dang, there's some really nice entries. I figured my only chance would be to hope that you were actually after a different feel to what's been produced so far. Something more... sneaky-looking, perhaps?

Tee hee ye'll get over it someday :)


Heh, I probably will. I'm still learning, I've barely used Adobe apart from graphics, and at school I don't do cartoony artwork.

I also opted to go for a more 'original' look - Hence the merging of the harp to Crow. *Huggles Crow*

I'm amazed that nobody yet has remarked Apollo's fantabulous swordfighting skills.

Did you hear that, Apollo? Everyone but me thinks you're lame at swordfighting. If I were you, I wouldn't give any presents to any of these mean people, and I would save them all for, let's say, somebody who could be named, I don't know, Empanado, perhaps.

Just a thought.

Anyways, here's my second attempt, where we see Apollo leaping into certain death, with his notorious --and feathery-- side-kick, Crow.

can't see yours, squirel307!

I like the round one of ye're entries best Starless! nice.
Empanada, If I may...I like the sf'ing entry! but the black .lines are so 'black' if ye understand what I mean they stand out too much in comparison with the soft tone of the rest of your avatar. I believe it would look even better with softer 'black' lines!

happy drawin' !

You need to upload the file to somewhere likephotobucket, instead of trying to link it from your desktop

Awsome! Great work!
I really love the backgeround with the clouds wich is so detailed!

Re-Entry:



As ye can see, I've made it spiffier. <3

Err... My best PP work? Maybe...

Criticism (And comments) APPRECIATED. :)

Edit: ArgleBargle pointed out my mistake... Er. :D Spelling is not my strong point. ;)


Wow! Great job with the stars in the background.

nice angelfire pic.
[/sarcasm]

Angelfire doesn't allow hotlinking so maybe you should upload it to imageshack.us or photobucket.com instead

edit: i got to the picture by manually going to it and it looks pretty cool.

here's my entry:


Don't be sarcastic, the poster likely didn't know they don't allow remote loading/viewing.

Dear, angelfire has ads to provide you with service, when you use a picture someplace else without having a webpage, we don't see the ads. Thus, angelfire looses money, and thus, they prohibit it. You may see your picture clearly because it's your website, but nobody else can view the picture.

You can create a webpage in angelfire and link folks to the web page, or try doing a search for other free hosts that allow viewing by remote access. I think alot of folks are using some photo bucket place. I wouldn't know, I bought my site, LOL.

Very nice just a suggestion though. Most Ocean master's have fancy frames on their avatar's to let the posters know they are OM's. It looks great but maybe see if you can put some kind of fancy border on it.

6k = 45x45 image (pixel size)


...If you're using the BMP format. Using PNG, a blank 45x45 can be stored in just one allocation unit, or, stored raw, 221 bytes.

Right now Windows is fighting with Paint over memory rights. Once that finishes up, I can post just how much 6k can store.

Edit: 571x571, with one byte left over.
